|PLease anyone who reads this contact Comcast cable in the Virginia/D.C. area to get race coverage from the outdoor life network. Also everyone else in other states if your cable network doesn't have OLN call to try to get it. Thanks

|Or you could just watch it on ABC. We used to get OLN here, but now with cablevision we don't anymore... Oh well.|

|oh boy! ABC! Let's see...
Live daily coverage of sufficient length to actually enjoy OR a one hour recap of 30+ hours of racing every Saturday. hmmm.
I guess there was always ESPN..
30 minutes each day:
15 min of commercials + 5 minutes of plugs for upcoming programs + 10 minutes of racing = just enough to piss you off.
GET BUSY! WRITE YOUR CABLE CO.! WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN/THING! WRITE YOUR PRESIDENT! PRAY! OLN COVERAGE OF THE TOUR IS A GOD GIVEN RIGHT FOR ALL CYCLISTS! IT'S TIME FOR A CONSTITUTIONAL AMMENDMENT!

|already have "WE" here! (nt)||must_pedal_harder|

|You might try to get OLN as part of a satellite dish package if your local cable company won't carry it.|

|I called my cable comp. 2 weeks ago. No one had heard of OLN, and after being informed what it is and why I wanted to get it, they just said that they didn't have it, and had no forseeable plans to get it. I checked around, and Direct TV didn't have it, but Dish Network did, but only if I get America's Top 150 package, with 2 dishes (a 36" for 110, and a 24-32" dish for 119 - our need in HI to get the signals). I am going to bite the bullet tomorrow, so that I can receive OLN.|

|It is not in basic coverage. You have to upgrade to a sports package to get OLN.|| |
